We're just going to come out and say it: a sprawling washroom and oversized walk-in shower may not be exactly attainable for most of us dwellers. However, similarly to window-shopping, it's sometimes fun just to look. But if you're actually looking to redesign your current setup, these luxurious showers will inspire you to spend a pretty penny on upgrading your daily rinsing routine.

Ahead are 25 stunning shower toom ideas that are so luxurious, you'll want to copy them STAT—and this goes for both real and imaginary bathrooms alike.

Off the Wall

Open-concept layouts are certainly the dream in sprawling bathroom spaces, but a bit of construction down the middle could actually update the space for the better.

We love how this bathroom places a single wall in the middle of the space. On one side you get a faucet for a bath and the other hides a walk-in shower, and the best part is it doesn't make this huge space feel small.

Not Behind the Looking Glass

If your shower is already separated from the rest of your primary bathroom, something as simple as removing the door can make it feel like a larger walk-in stall. We love how open and airy (despite the walls) this all-white shower feels.

Two Become One

Ideal for smaller bathroom spaces, this all-in-one stall houses both a walk-in shower and a freestanding tub, proving that you really can have it all. And to keep things open and spacious, a product alcove in the wall proves that shower caddies are a thing of the past—or at least they should be.

Ditch the Doors

Why restrict your morning shower to doors, curtains, and tubs? Even though it's inside a regular-sized bathroom, this open shower room set up with a stone floor feels like its own designated room. An inconspicuous drain positioned right under the showerhead will ensure you don't have flooding issues.

Box if Off

A glass box positioned in the corner of your bathroom for a stand-up shower is both modern and beautiful. It creates a separation from the rest of the bathroom—creating your very own shower room—without feeling claustrophobic or like an obstruction to your layout.

Just be sure to keep plenty of window cleaner on hand to keep water spots and soap scum away.

Light Up the Stage

LECLAIR DECOR

Giving your shower its own lighting source is the best way to make any size shower feel like its own room. We love how this recessed lighting bar looks tucked along the back wall.

Take Up Space

There's no sense in having a giant walk-in shower and limiting yourself to a single showerhead. In this oversized stall, two shower heads are better than one. Plus, the simple addition of an added handheld attachment not only makes getting clean more enjoyable, but it also looks beautiful to boot.

Plant Roots

While our dream of waking up and showering in our own private rainforest treehouse may not be completely within reach for most of us, a few potted plants can transport you to a lush landscape. At the very least, it's a great place for your plant babies to thrive and an even better place for you to enjoy them.

Terrazzo Camoflauge

walk-in shower

DZEK

The retro terrazzo trend is back in a big way and this bathroom has more than embraced it. Splashing it across the walls, floors, and sink creates an illusion that the entire bathroom is a walk-in shower room (especially with the addition of an invisible glass shower door).

All White Everything

A sparkly clean white shower looks luxe and fit for a spa. This clear cube that houses white tile, with matching white grout looks bright and like a place we want to shower in every morning (and night).

Shower Room With a View

ALEXANDER DESIGN

This is about a luxe as a walk-in shower gets. Open concept on one side and a stunning view on the other makes this space one of our favorite shower rooms we've seen.

A Place to Perch

AMY LEFERINK AT INTERIOR IMPRESSIONS

Only a spacious walk-in shower can comfortably fit a bench, but this space goes the extra step by adding a statement wall with hooks for towels or robes. This in-stall nook elevates things and thanks to the natural materials, this setup makes you feel like you're entering a luxurious spa every time you step in.

Concrete Jungle

JULIAN PORCINO

As we already know, tonally dressing your space is the best way to make it look and feel luxe, modern, and so expensive. Coating the walls in concrete, like in this luxury bathroom, is the epitome of an aspirational shower room.

Double It Up

KATIE MARTINEZ

Adding two things to your walk-in shower is the difference between a place to get clean and one that doubles as a spa-worthy steam room. A door and a built-in bench are the perfect additions to new and existing builds.

Think Big

walk-in shower ideas

JULIAN PORCINO

This luxury-resort-inspired bathroom is real-life proof that you don't need endless square footage to achieve a lavish walk-in shower room. This layout utilizes a thin divider (as to not eat up additional space) to separate the shower from the vanity area, and the details (from micro tile to brass fixtures) make it all look expensive.

Heart Your Hardware

The last thing you need in a luxury walk-in shower is unsightly hardware. Treat them as if you're accessorizing an outfit and you'll be sure to love the space you create. We love these brass additions from the minimal drain cover to the showerhead that almost resembles a pendant light.

Make a Statement

walk-in shower ideas

CHELIUS HOUSE OF DESIGN

Statement walls are our favorite addition to any room design, and the bathroom (and more specifically, the shower) is no exception. This bathroom boasts a serious accent wall thanks to the black tile along the back wall of this shower room. Extra points to the designer for going with a high contrast palette of black and white.

You Zig, We Zag

JK INTERIOR LIVING

It's no secret we're fond of the subway tile look, but if you're thinking of retiling any wall in your home, consider different methods of application. This herringbone pattern created with marble tile and minimal grout lines looks modern and beautiful.

Half and Half

walk-in shower ideas

MARIE FLANIGAN INTERIORS

If a glass box is too modern of a walk-in shower design for your current setup, but you also don't want to completely obstruct your view, consider incorporating glass only on the top half of your shower stall. This setup looks worthy of a countryside property, but doesn't look outdated in the slightest.

Modern Minimal

walk-in shower ideas

CATHIE HONG INTERIORS

One of the simplest ways to achieve a minimal aesthetic is by carrying the same tile from floor to ceiling, and this large-scale gray tile with nearly invisible grout lines is quite the selection. And the best part is it stays on display thanks to the barely-there shower door.

Tile From Top to Bottom

MAITE GRANDA

Take a page out of this modern wash room and tile your shower stall from floor to ceiling (yes, ceiling) for a streamlined look. It's no doubt bathing in a marble-on-marble wet room like this one will feel more like a spa than your at-home bathroom.

Cool Factor

LILJENCRANTZ DESIGN

A dark cave-like space is an excellent choice for a place like a bathroom and its walk-in shower. This washroom perfectly pairs deep gray stone with a dark wood to create a modern oasis.

Caught In the Middle

JULIAN PORCINO

If you're not one for swinging doors, this setup with glass panels on either side of the shower create a walk-in feel without the door. And the best part is the space still feels open and creates the perfect scene to show off your gorgeous tile selection.

Look Into the Sky

Searching for the epitome of luxury? A skylight in your shower is a great place to start. This setup that includes vaulted ceilings and a glass top brightens up this walk-in shower stall the way only natural light can.

Design Duet

walk-in shower ideas

JESSICA HELGERSON INTERIOR DESIGN

There's something about pairing multiple design styles in a single space that brings a room to life. This bathroom does an incredible job of pairing contrasting materials that unexpectedly complement each other in the best way.

The wood-paneled ceiling plays off the cabinets, accent wall, and planter, while the marble floors and shower wall tiles work to make the space feel more formal. In other words, boho and modern are a match made in home décor heaven.
